Casa Mosaica Newsletters
The autumn weather in Andalusia was extraordinary last year. At the beginning of October it continued to be extremely warm. By the end of October we were still able to visit the empty beaches and enjoy afternoon siestas in the sun after long, delicious lunches. Even better than mid summer...no crowds, no traffic and much gentler heat.
Since I last wrote in April we have had a very busy summer in Gaucin. As you can see by the picture below, Casa Mosaica was almost swallowed up by the sweetie stall at this years Annual Feria from the 2nd - 6th August. The Feria is a vestige of the ancient livestock fair, the event is now in honour of patron Virgen de las Nieves (Our Lady of the Snows).
“The merry year is born like the bright berry from the naked thorn.” (Coleridge)Sitting in very grey, cold London, writing this whilst dreaming of blue skies and palm trees in Andalucia. Christmas in Gaucin this year was wonderful. We cooked turkey for 14 and the house was completely full of house guests, friends and family.
